Skin cancer is an effect of both heredity and environmental causes (ex. UV rays/parents) Skin cancer forms tumors under the skin. These tumors have a chance to be malignant. Human skin is technically the body’s largest organ and protects all other organs. It’s also possible this’ll harm other body parts can be harmed.
The first two stages of skin cancer are when the cancer is localized to only one area of the body and can be removed with surgery before it spreads.
The third and final stage of skin cancer are when the cancer is not treated when found and is left alone to where it spreads to numerous part of the body also very possibly harming other organs of the body. Also it will harder to remove the sin cancer tumors if the surgery is even possible at all!
In most cases of skin cancer, signs can be as simple as a mole or growth on the skin. Most times these small moles or growths are harmless but sometimes they can be the early signs of certain types of harmful skin cancer. These moles or growths can usually be removed by surgery if found to be harmful or a threat to your health.
The most common and most effective method for removing skin cancer, although sometimes expensive, is through surgery. This method is traditionally done when the cancer is in the stages one or two because when the cancer reaches the stages of three and four, the surgery can have negative consequences.
As of right now, sadly, there is not a cure for any form of skin cancer. There are people around the world(Scientists) working on a cure for skin cancer.
There are several ways to prevent getting this cancer. Do not be overly exposed to the sun during the times of day where it is strongest. Use sunblock if you go outside. Wear a hat or other protection when going outside. Get regular checkups from your doctor to see if you have skin cancer.
